When you think of a hunter, what image comes to mind? Probably not a Patagonia-clad gun safety proponent like Tim Stevens. In this bonus episode, Tim leads the way on an elk hunt and shares what it means to take a nuanced stance on gun rights. Plus, we face the very real (and kind of icky) possibility of hauling fresh meat out of the Montana wilderness.  Resources: To learn more about the people and organizations featured in this episode and access critical information about suicide and violence prevention visit: https://lastdayresources.simvoly.com/.  Stephanie Wittels Wachs is the host.

Growing up in an Atlanta neighborhood that’s been “thrown away” and “forgotten,” Derriontae’s survival hinged on joining a gang and packing heat, so you might be surprised to also find him practicing yoga and tending to a vegetable garden. In this episode, we get our hands dirty at an urban farm dedicated to tackling the root causes of gun violence and poverty. It has all the signs of a feel-good story, but things aren’t as simple as they seem.    Resources:   Support Gangstas to Growers Pick up a bottle of Sweet Sol Hot Sauce   To learn more about the people and organizations featured in this episode and access critical information about suicide and violence prevention visit: https://lastdayresources.simvoly.com/.    Stephanie Wittels Wachs is the host.

In episode 1, our team travels to Montana, where cowboy culture reigns supreme, everyone is armed, and 86% of firearm deaths are suicides. There, we meet a couple that represents all the contradictions at the root of America’s gun debate: One is a suicide prevention advocate, and the other is the most adamant Second Amendment supporter we’ve ever met.

Gun violence in America is a public health crisis, but the reality is that guns aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. So, how can we learn to live more safely in a country that has more guns than people? In this season of Last Day, we try to answer this question by traveling to Montana and Georgia. We talk to families who have lost loved ones to gun suicides and stray bullets and discover tangible solutions to reducing gun-related deaths, all while gaining perspective on gun culture across the US.   If you or someone you know is struggling emotionally or feeling hopeless, it’s important to talk to someone about it now.

Season 2 Finale! We started this season on a bridge but told you not to get caught up in the romantic notion of saviors and last minute interventions. Suicide isn’t about one moment in time. But if you or someone you love is suicidal, a single moment can be the difference between life and death. So, this week we’re doing a toolkit episode all about crisis response. What do you do when help is needed right now? This week, we role play with a suicide hotline employee, give the Cliff’s notes version of QPR suicide prevention training, and hear about what happens when therapists go on strike.    This episode features a host of talented people, including Tara Consolino (director of suicide prevention and substance abuse, Detroit V.A.), Dr. Julie Goldstein Grumet (director, Zero Suicide Institute at the Education Development Center), Dr. John Draper (executive director, National Suicide Prevention Lifeline), Susan Whitney (licensed marriage and family therapist, Kaiser), and Sal Rosselli (president and co-founder, National Union of Healthcare Workers).   Resources from the episode: Read up on QPR from the QPR Institute and the Suicide Prevention Resource Center Zero Suicide Institute, their general toolkit, and population-specific toolkits  National Suicide Prevention Lifeline  Lifeline’s 5 Steps to Help Someone in Crisis #Bethe1To NUHW Kaiser Don’t Deny campaign webpage NUHW Care Delayed, Care Denied white paper Learn more about SB 855 via CapRadio   If you or someone you know is struggling emotionally or feeling hopeless, it’s important to talk to someone about it now.

It turns out, there’s more to suicide prevention than crisis hotline numbers and inspirational memes. This week, we’re looking at the concept of upstream intervention - because the most effective way to convince someone to live is to help them create a life worth living. We explore the toll of historical trauma for American Indians and Alaska Natives, communities currently experiencing an unprecedented rise in suicide while also coping with some of the highest rates of COVID infection in the country.    We’re joined by Dr. Billie Jo Kipp of the Blackfeet tribe and Shavaughna Underwood of the Quinault tribe, who both work at the Center for Native American Youth. We also chat with Patrick Kennedy about Mental Health Parity and holding insurance companies accountable.    Season 2 of Last Day is created in partnership with The Jed Foundation.

Imagine you’re six months pregnant with your first child and the person you love, the person with whom you’ve built a life, wakes you up in the middle of the night convinced there are people in the house. But...there aren’t. He’s convinced you’re being followed. But...you’re not. Where do you turn for help when your mental health crisis is invisible? Jenny Heddin took her husband to the emergency room only to find they weren’t equipped to handle their crisis. Like millions of Americans, they were turned away because there wasn’t an available bed.

I Feel Nothing

What’s the point of going to treatment if you’ve essentially been dealt a death sentence? That’s the way some veterans feel about a potential PTSD diagnosis. Another thing holding people back? The fear that their trauma isn’t bad enough. So how do you admit you need help? And where do you turn when you’re ready? This week we’re joined by Jason Kander who served as an intelligence officer in Afghanistan, Tara Consolino, Director of Suicide Prevention and Substance Use Disorders at the Detroit V.A., and Rajeev Ramchand, a psychiatric epidemiologist with the RAND Corporation, to talk about what happens when your symptoms don’t look like the ones in the movies.    Season 2 of Last Day is created in partnership with The Jed Foundation.

The 2nd has been restricted so many times already. The GCA, the Brady laws, The Hughes ammendment and so on. The rights enshrined in it have been whittled down, restricted and people are done with being told what's acceptable to own by a bunch of rich douches who are protected by the very same guns the demand are banned. You wanna know why gun crime is exploding? Because liberal DA's and the federal prosecutors refuse to charge under the existing laws. Its supposed to be a 5 year mandatory minimum for illegal possession by a felon. Giving an armed felon who has prior charges a suspended or 1 year sentence means they will just keep committing gun crimes. I have no interest in hearing this Kimber shill, Fudd try and tell me a damn thing. The 2nd isn't about hunting. Stop pretending it is. Shall. Not. Be Infringed. And fuck you and every single Karen who continues to try and restrict constitutional protections.

listened to this episode, coincidentally, the day after Uvalde, Texas. The NRA feels like a domestic terrorist group. I really enjoyed the cogent logic of speaker Ryan. Why are these voices not heard? Why are none of our voices heard? Whose children have to die? How many is enough?

Made me think a lot. Nevertheless, the objective of a car is not the same as the objective of a gun...

My friend was caught cutting and broke down. Whenever I try to ask him about it, he says "because it's fun" when I feel like he's just deflecting it...

I am not usually a commenter on podcasts or anything really. This episode MOVED me. I want Jenny to know how absolutely amazing her story is. The system absolutely failed her husband, and the entire family. Jenny demonstrated so much resilience over and over again. Not many people could be in her position and respond in the way she did. And since I'm here writing, Stephanie, I have listened to season 1 and am working on season 2. I appreciate your angle on these tough topics. I am a trauma survivor, special education public school teacher, and single mother with a partner in recovery. I admire you for taking your experience and turning into an opportunity for others.

My daughter suffered with severe depression as a teen. We sat through many long ER waits and evaluations. We were always turned away even though she admitted plans to commit suicide. I worked so hard to keep her alive. By God's grace she is 26 today. She still suffers with depression but she refused to try to get help now. I wish help was easier to find and not so stigmatized.

Hearing Tali's psychological profile I recognised many traits of Asperger's Syndrome, as I was also diagnosed. I'm currently fighting a depression and this episode really resonated with me.
